LET TER FR OM TH E E D ITOR Dear Readers, As we make the final preparations for publication in the midst of a global pandemic, this issue's contents serves as a potent reminder of the power of home. It's up to us to care for one another – to create spaces and communities that nurture our daily lives. If we're lucky, we meet someone special early on who is willing to take us under their wing, show us the ropes, and share a few secrets of their success along the way. In this issue, ARRAY highlights three accomplished designers who all pay homage to their mentors. Tina Ramchandani’s early career was indelibly influenced by the five years she spent working for international designer, Vicente Wolf. Ramchandani credits Wolf for explaining his approach to design as well as the more practical side of juggling projects and working with clients. But perhaps most of all, she embraced Wolf’s global perspective and love of travel as a way to seek and find an endless well of inspiration (Simplicity With Soul, p. 38). Queens native Danielle Colding spent years studying cultural anthropology at Stanford and performing on the dance stage before making a graceful pivot into the design world. She learned important lessons at the start of her new career from the inimitable Keith Irvine. Although her personal taste differed greatly from his eclectic take on traditionalism, Colding describes Irvine as “a master” who opened her imagination and gave her confidence in her own talents (The Artful Life, p. 32). Brian McCarthy wrote the book on mentorship. Literally. The first job he landed after college was at the venerable Parish-Hadley. In 2015, along with Bunny Williams, he coauthored Parish-Hadley Tree of Life: An Intimate History of the Legendary Design Firm, wherein 30 designers recount their experiences of working there and how doing so forever influenced their own designs. McCarthy went on to an illustrious career, founding his eponymous company in the early ‘90s. He took away innumerable lessons from Mrs. Parish and especially Mr. Hadley, who he hails as a great editor of thoughts and ideas. Recently, McCarthy was presented with the Albert Hadley Lifetime Achievement Award by The New York School of Interior Design, a testament to his achievements, as well as a tribute to a man whose tutelage proved invaluable (Reflections on a Mentor, p. 24). These designers will, in turn, pass the torch to those who follow in their footsteps. Whether you are just eagerly starting out or already enjoying a long, storied design career, we hope that sharing in this tradition will be as memorable as it is inspiring.

HONOR THE PAST DESIGN THE FUTURE

ALBERTO VILLALOBOS SHOPS 200 LEX, WHERE DESIGN CAN TELL ITS STORY. “STORYTELLING IS A KEY COMPONENT OF MY DESIGN PHILOSOPHY,” said Alberto Villalobos, principal of A. Villalobos. “Including my client’s history is the best way to personalize and create a space tailored to their unique background.”

6

Although this has always been a key component of Alberto’s design philosophy, traditional craftsmanship has become more and more popular among designers across the industry. “It’s one of our responsibilities to champion craftsmen and to keep their traditional techniques alive, and more designers are moving toward that instinct.”


Alberto Villalobos

For his recently designed pied- à -terre, his main inspiration came from the apartment’s exterior surroundings. Alberto concentrated on horizontal lines to ensure unobstructed park views, and focused on a color scheme based on the existing copper roof and park greenery. “The hallway in particular is a focal point of the client’s heritage,” Alberto said. “It operates as a gallery where their art is a main focus, and a story within itself.” Influences of the bronze bench by Christian Liaigre, the sculpture by Merete Rasmussen, and the mold in the bench are echoed in the overall craftmanship of the hallway design. Left: Showcasing the living room’s park views was a result of emphasizing the horizontal lines at play. An oversized ottoman with sliding tray by Troscan anchors the room, with a handcarved sculpture by Mathieu Nab.

Top: The hallway here doubles as a gallery space, showcasing part of the client’s art collection with a sculpture by Merete Rasmussen from J. Lohman Gallery. Bottom: A pop of color emphasizes the duality of the indoor space with the natural wood side table accent.

Books

At Home in the English Countryside: Designers and Their Dogs Susanna Salk Rizzoli March 2020 224 pages $50

Decorate Happy Anthony Baratta February 2020 Rizzoli 240 pages $45

French Chateau Living: The Château du Lude Barbara de Nicolay Flammarion March 2020 264 pages $34.98

The Perfect Kitchen Barbara Sallick Rizzoli March 2020 272 pages $55

On the heels of her book At Home with Dogs and Their Designers, lifestyle author Susanna Salk offers another take on how to live stylishly with your pooch, this time in the English countryside. The homes of British all-star designers Kit Kemp, Anouska Hempel, Paolo Moschino, and Veere Grenney are showcased along with their whippets, retrievers, spaniels, and terriers.

The title of celebrated international interior designer Anthony Baratta’s book, Decorate Happy, says it all. Dubbed the “King of East Coast Chic,” Baratta’s first solo book showcases rooms filled with joy, lots of patterns, bold statement-making color, and “preppy-chic” style.

Although a trip to France's unique treasure may not be on the horizon, author Barbara de Nicolay’s book French Chateau Living is the next best thing. Situated on the banks of the Loir, the historic Chateau de Lude is representative of French architecture from the Middle Ages to the 19th century. Classical, Gothic and Italian Renaissance styles are represented in the castle’s elegantly appointed drawing rooms and apartments which hold the distinction of surviving the French Revolution.

Who better to advise on designing the ultimate kitchen than Waterworks co-founder Barbara Sallick? Everything you need to know about creating one of the most complex rooms in the house is covered from surfaces and storage to cabinetry, hardware, and (last but not least) style. Sallick covers the basics of functionality and addresses the role of the kitchen as the most popular gathering spot in the home.

Besides providing a look into idyllic British homes, the author offers great ideas on how to successfully co-exist with our four-legged friends, who remain a permanent fixture for life in the country. Dog owners and Anglophiles alike will find something of interest in this unique book. Salk’s books A Privileged Life, Celebrating WASP Style and Be Your Own Decorator are bestsellers. She hosts the popular “At Home With” video series that showcases top style-makers and their environs across the world.

10

From interiors by the shore and a colonial revival to rustic country and Milan-inspired interiors, twelve of his favorite projects are featured, exemplifying his penchant for an All-American signature look. Baratta’s fearless decorating tips are a running theme throughout the book. It’s no wonder the multi-talented designer won the coveted Benjamin Moore Hue Award for lifetime achievement in design: his rooms are an explosion in color, Matisse-inspired pattern on pattern, and “a playground for creativity.” A Baratta-designed home exudes self-expression where color is everything, and his advice is simple, “To decorate happy, let your home be an extension of yourself and look for things that bring you joy.” At the end of the day, this is what decorating is all about.

The tour includes not only the well-preserved interiors; readers are taken on a journey through the French, English, and Chineseinspired gardens, unique horse stables, medieval 15th-century kitchen (updated for the present), and an Italian Renaissance studio that is painted by the School of Rafael. The author Barbara de Nicolay certainly knows her subject -- as she and her husband, Count Louis-Jean de Nicolay, live at the Chateau with their family.

The work of interiors designers Steven Gambrel, Gil Schafer, and Suzanne Kasler along with sage advice from cookbook authors and food columnists Julia Turshen and Melissa Clark is also featured. The Perfect Kitchen is a great companion to Sallick’s popular The Perfect Bath and an essential resource in decorating the room of your dreams (and your clients as well).

Classicism at Home: Architecture of Alireza Sagharchi: Stanhope Gate Alireza Sagharchi Rizzoli March 2020 204 pages $85

New Vintage French Interiors Sebastien Siraudeau Flammarion March 2020 208 pages $14.98

Rooms by ZoyaB. Zoya Bograd Blurb July 2015 (no pages given) $250

City Living: Apartments, Lofts, Studios, and Townhouses Francesc Zamora Mola Rizzoli March 2020 420 pages $17.98

Classicism at Home marks the internationally-renowned, Londonbased firm Stanhope Gate’s debut book. Principal Alireza Sagharchi’s work as one of the world’s leading classical architects is captured in never-before-seen photographs, chronicling European Palladian villas, a country estate in Scotland, a residence in London’s Kensington Gardens, and a retreat on the Danube.

If you are a Francophile, then New Vintage French Interiors is for you. Part travel and part design, armchair travelers are taken on a voyage around the French countryside, touring a dozen interiors complete with charm, elegance, and sound design advice. From rooms filled with French country antiques and Provencal prints to a barn turned sleek modern loft, author Sebastien Siraudeau’s country interiors are both modern and traditional.

In its second edition, Rooms by ZoyaB. features the work of the renowned interior designer’s sophisticated and chic nurseries and children’s rooms. Whimsy and color are the order of the day as her rooms are often set against the backdrop of an ethereal mural. The birth of her daughter led to decorating children’s rooms, and today she is a leading authority on the subject.

City Living is a valuable resource on designs for metropolitan living. Whether you reside in an apartment, townhouse, loft, or studio, creating a beautiful and functional interior involves practical design. Author Francesc Zamora’s book features smallscale urban interiors (55 homes in all) that showcase urban living at its best. Making the case that “urban areas across the globe are experiencing a renaissance,” the book covers transformative and flexible living spaces from Germany, Spain, Italy, and Portugal to Sweden, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, and the United States. Offering tips on how to live with ecology in mind, the book covers adaptive reuse, urban infill, and micro-unit building designs through 600 fullcolor photographs and diagrams.

The architect’s work marries traditional planning and design with modern details and knowledge from the past: all told through unique interiors, exteriors, and elegantly manicured gardens. Architectural aficionado HRH The Prince of Wales pens the foreword of the book.

New Vintage French Interiors showcases inspiration on every page. Creative wall displays of antique gardening tools, curated collections of jewel-toned vases, pastel-hued bar spritzers, and weathered oars are just a few of the unique vintage details. Marking his sixth book on the subject of French lifestyle, be sure to check out French Style at Home, French Interiors and French Seaside Style.

The Manhattan-based interior designer is influenced by children’s fairy tales and the cinema including The Nutcracker, The Wizard of Oz, The Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty, and Peter Pan. Bograd’s to-the-trade Bograd Kids showcases her passion for baby and children’s furniture, bedding, rugs, lighting, and mirrors. The book is an excellent source of inspiration for designing classic stylish children’s spaces.

The book is a must for urban dwellers who seek unique ways of living in the city.

or New York interior designer Brian McCarthy, learning at the feet of one of the most influential designers of the 20th century was the chance of a lifetime.

“Lucky me that my first job out of college was at Parish Hadley. I never imagined how that would unfold,” says the Pratt graduate. “Going to the firm was an eye-opening opportunity, and more importantly, Albert was one of the most generous and caring gentlemen. He wanted you to be involved every step of the way and had a whole confidence in teaching the younger generation. What he had was such a natural gift and he was a unique visionary.” Competition for a coveted job opening was fierce, and after a four-month interview process that dwindled to McCarthy and one other designer, the stars and the planets aligned. “I got a call from his secretary Eileen who asked me for my

birthdate and time of birth. Apparently, Albert was into numerology at that time in his life, and I guess my number was better.” It was a heady time in the mid-eighties for a firm whose client roster was a “who’s who” of Kennedys, Astors, Roosevelts, and Gettys. McCarthy’s first big job was the Degas- and Renoir-filled duplex of publisher and philanthropist Enid Haupt. Exposed to Hadley’s process, he details, “He was the most incredible editor of ideas and thinking things through. What he really taught me was you have to look at the past to the future, be curious, and always keep your eyes open.” He also learned from Mrs. Parish (who went by the name of Sister Parish) the mechanics of layering a room and how to “undecorate” with fabric.

McCarthy eventually made partner, eventually starting his own firm, Brian J. McCarthy Inc., in 1991. His projects ranged from homes of ambassadors and Manhattan penthouses to a ski chalet in Switzerland and a residence in Monaco. One of his favorites is a recent boat project in Holland. “It was amazing and something I have never done before,” he muses. “The idea is the same, but the boat is moving!” Living by the credo that no two projects are alike, his style avoids the trappings of branded looks as he notes in his book Luminous Interiors (Rizzoli), “While there’s a thread that runs through everything, no two projects are ever alike: It’s all about the homeowner.” The AD 100 designer passes his knowledge down to the next up-andcoming generation of designers, relaying that design is not only about creativity; it’s a problem-solving business. “Design is a lot of architectural organization, spatial organization, and how we approach a job by looking for references and finding ideas that we can discuss collectively.” His process involves “putting together rooms of furniture and having everything

I then lay in the carpets and don’t lose sight of all the pieces—these were lessons I learned from Albert and the many years of trying not to make mistakes. It’s a practical way to check yourself.” In a fitting tribute to McCarthy’s career and Hadley’s tutelage, the multi-talented designer received the Albert Hadley Lifetime Achievement Award at the New York School of Interior Design’s annual 2020 gala this past spring. “A day doesn’t go by that I don’t think about Albert. It’s always something in the day that makes me reference him. He was exceptional in every way and the last of the great gentlemen.”

Clockwise from left: In this Brooklyn duplex, the floral wallpaper here is a nod to the owner's love of fashion. A trompe-l'oeil black wallpaper on the ceiling adds depth and brings down the high ceiling. The light fixture is by Apparatus. Colding has been practicing interior design since 2002. She opened her own design studio in 2006.

or Danielle Colding, interior design isn’t all about adding new things to your home—it’s also about rediscovering the beauty of what you already have. One of her favorite projects was working on a colonial house in New Rochelle, with an owner who had a great collection of African and African-American art. Among all the beautiful objects, Colding drew inspiration from a humble piece—a folksy oil painting made by a friend of the owner. The painting’s stoney whites, dusty pinks, and rich blues became the color scheme for the room. “I fell in love with that piece,” she recalls. “Working with art is my favorite way to work, because you already have the star of the show. From there, I ask, does the room need to be a great background, or does the room need to draw out something from the art?” This eclectic, object-based approach drives Colding’s company, Danielle Colding Design, Inc., or dcdny. She’s developed her mostly residential practice in New York City over the past decade and a half, in spite of challenges, such as the 2008 economic crash.

Colding grew up in Queens, in a Tudor house with a stone fireplace, stained glass windows, and beautiful wood finishes. “My family didn’t have the money to keep up the house the way we would have liked to,” she recalls, adding that her mother was a nurse who often spent months or years paying off purchases of antique furnishings. Inexpensive art from her mother’s travels in Africa gave the space a personal and global feel. “In a very traditional house, we had a white linen Italian sectional sofa, which is the type of mixing of styles that you see now. My mom was doing that in the ‘70s and ‘80s!” But, design wasn’t an obvious career choice for Colding. She studied cultural anthropology, as well as African and AfricanAmerican studies at Stanford. Then she danced professionally for a few years in San Francisco. Feeling burnt out on dance,

Bottom left: Working on the New Rochelle Colonial was mainly about creating "a beautiful envelope" for the owners' art collection. The project was mainly about adding fresh coats of paint, wallpapers and upholstery.

she searched for a career that involved working with people and beautiful things. That led her to study interior design at Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles. In 2002, Colding returned to New York, where she worked at Irvine & Fleming and then Orsini Design Associates. The city’s late Keith Irvine was known for his stately, OldWorld interiors, full of chintz and lacquer. “He was my mentor, and he was a master,” Colding says. “His interiors had these incredibly fancy details, yet you could walk in and put your feet up on the ottoman, which was a great lesson. My aesthetic is not like his, but he opened my mind to the possibilities of design and showed me how to have confidence with clients.”

Colding founded her own studio in 2006, but in 2008, unexpected circumstances decimated her business. She moved home to Queens, tended to her dying mother, and struggled to find a path forward. That’s when her friend Tanika Ray, host of HGTV’s “Design Star,” pushed her to audition, despite her misgivings. She was cast on the show and won in 2012. Her final project was designing a space for a pair of artists with funky taste and tons of original art. She went wild with color, and the clients loved it. In addition to the exposure, Colding says of the show, “I found my voice there. I became confident about putting words to my approach.” Today, Colding’s team is lean—just her and an assistant—but dcdny’s projects are mighty. Earlier this year, Colding was at work on a sixstory townhouse in Kips Bay and a penthouse in Dumbo. Because she

For the living room of a newconstruction duplex in Brooklyn, Colding kept the furnishings modern and clean, but added texture, and a massive plant, to make the space feel comfortable. The checkered rug is cow-hide, and the coffee table is walnut.

loves working with art collectors, frequently her projects are about “creating a beautiful envelope for what the client already has,” she says—as in the New Rochelle colonial with the pink-and-blue painting. But Colding is also adept at warming up spaces that feel cold, as in the case of a newly-constructed Brooklyn duplex that looked like a white box. “The proportions

were all over the place,” she says. To bring down the high ceiling and give it depth, she chose a trompe-l’oeil black wallpaper that made it appear as if the ceiling was quilted. A staircase became an accent wall, thanks to a black-and-white wallpaper featuring photorealistic flowers—a nod to the owner’s passion for fashion. Colding says, “I want every home I work on to have a sense of soul.”

nspiration presents itself in a variety of unexpected ways. It can be a day at the museum, a great piece of art, a beautiful hotel lobby in Bombay, or something as simple as the color of a leaf. In some cases, the tutelage of a mentor can be the ultimate muse. For a budding interior designer, a front-row seat to the workings of an iconic mentor is invaluable. Such was the case of Manhattanbased interior designer Tina Ramchandani, who spent five years working for international designer Vicente Wolf. “From the moment I met with him, I knew it was a great fit, and I was blown away with his style and how he approaches a room,” she says. “I learned how to handle different client personalities and juggle projects.” Wolf, whose primary inspiration culminates from his travels, is known for his restrained, elegant aesthetic interiors with a unique global perspective. “I love how he approaches the world,” she notes. “He travels for two months out of every year and comes back so refreshed and invigorated.” APR

Today she heads up her namesake firm Tina Ramchandani Creative (TRC), and pays that mentorship forward to young designers. Concentrating mostly on residential interiors, Tina specializes in a signature concept called Soulful Minimalism™ which integrates her clients’ sophisticated lifestyles. “The term to me means warm modern interiors that capture the core of my clients living in the space that is clean, refined, but also relaxed. It’s a space where you are surrounded by the things that matter so you can focus on the people that matter.”

Clockwise from top left: “The compromise of the aesthetic was ‘country modern’ and the country can be seen in this bed from Eloquence and the wooden art,” says the designer, while modern touches are infused with the articulating lights from Artemide, nightstands and accessories. Ann Sacks tile and Visual Comfort/Circa lighting complement the custom nine-foot master bathroom vanity. A charming giraffe photograph and modern egg style chair give the nursery a playful, modern feel. Twin beds and a modern multi-color stripe rug anchor a guest room. A handsome desk from Mr. Brown London and Kravet wallcovering were used for the “his and hers” home office nook.

Named a “2018 Next Wave” designer by House Beautiful, her full-service firm designs residences all over Manhattan, New Jersey, and the Hamptons as well as Los Angeles and Florida (including four time-intensive show houses). Her most recent project for a young couple who traded in their midtown Manhattan apartment for a home in Midvale, New Jersey, reflects her sensibilities as a soulful minimalist. “They bought a ‘builder house’ that was very symmetrical and square and did not have a lot of personality,” she details. “Since the wife was pregnant with her first child, they needed more space. The husband wanted a home with a place to cook and a chef’s kitchen outdoors and a more relaxed lifestyle.” Since time was of the essence due to the impending birth, Ramchandani immediately renovated four of the six bathrooms and decorated the spaces from floor to ceiling. Taking her cues from the outdoors, she says, “The outside of

the house is green, and we did different shades of blues and greens in every room, so it felt like a cohesive house. He wanted modern, and she wanted country and ‘homey,’ so the palette gave the house a basic uniformity.” The couple moved their existing furniture to the basement and started fresh in all of the rooms, which meant sourcing all new modern furnishings (except for a vintage bar cart from the online antiques site lstdibs). Like her mentor, Ramchandani often experiences a case of wanderlust. In years past, she traveled a great deal to India to visit family and friends.

As for the aforementioned hotel lobby in Bombay, the space was the springboard for her career. “I walked into the hotel one day and saw this beautiful space with windows floor to ceiling and different layers of seating with an ocean view,” she details. “I had this amazing feeling of being uplifted. I thought whatever this is; it’s what I want in my life.” Top: A variety of blue and white patterns and solid white furnishings form the color scheme for the terrace.

Quality Bistro 120 W. 55th St. 212.433.3330 qualitybistro.com

After more than 30 years at Gotham Bar and Grill, chef Alfred Portale finally has his first solo restaurant. Located in a renovated carriage house, the 114-seat restaurant offers dishes from several different regions of Italy. Portale’s menu features five categories—Cicchetti (small snacks) like crostini of baccala, shrimp and potato, and a fritto misto of calamari, shrimp and cod with a Sorrento lemon aioli; Antipasti of roasted fennel with black rice and blood orange; an assortment of pastas for the Primi; Secondi, including brodetti of cod, shellfish, lobster broth, and fettuna; and an assortment of Contorni. One surprise is the in-house grain milling program, which uses locally-farmed grains for making bread, polenta, and pastas. The unfussy design of the space is warm and inviting, with reclaimed timber, bleached white oak, and painted white brick walls accented by teal leather banquettes. Chef Portale brings a sense of modern Italian cuisine to his new restaurant without pretention.

Flatiron has a new Swedish photography museum, Fotografiska, and an accompanying café with an Old-World European flair. Verōnika, the 146-seat restaurant from Stephen Starr and chef Robert Aikens, has a menu with a distinctly Eastern European accent. Upscale takes on schnitzel, potato pierogis with caviar, and lamb goulash compete with the grand space. Designed by Roman and Williams, the dining room features leather chairs and velvet blue banquettes, with 20-foot ceilings, multi-tiered brass chandeliers and archways looming overhead. It’s easy to spend a good deal of money here, but there are also many items that won’t break the bank and are just as delicious. Try hors d’oeuvres like Oysters Vladimir or Herring Under a Fur Coat. Splurge from their selection of caviars or go for a classic entrée like Chicken Kiev. The dessert trolley boasts standards like Viennese chocolate cake, Charlotte Russe, citrus Bavarian cream, and Café Liégeois from the kitchen.

Basque cuisine comes to Manhattan in chef Ryan Bartlow’s new Spanish restaurant on the far end of East Broadway near Grand Street. After a stint at threeMichelin-starred Akelarre in San Sebastian, Spain and 12 years working in some of New York City’s best restaurants, the chef adds some of his own inventions to Ernesto’s menu, like calamari with squid ink, chicken croquettes, and pig’s ear with lentils and fried egg. The seasonally-focused menu changes daily, with Pinxtos—a small, tapas-style snack—and entrées like octopus brochettes with pear and salsa brava, tripe Madrid-style, braised ox tail, and grilled turbot. One of the Ernesto’s biggest hits is a towering platter of housemade chips piled with sliced Iberico ham. All pair nicely with the extensive natural wine list.

Quality Bistro brings the best of brasserie classics—with a twist— to its big multi-level French restaurant in Midtown. Chef Antonio Mora serves shrimp cocktail with passionfruit hot sauce and saffron aioli, and a Detroit tarte flambée topped with pepperoni cups. French onion soup comes with braised short rib and duck fat croutons. Poussin pressé and merguez spiced lamb chops round out the menu, which includes a variety of steak options. The restaurant also serves seasonal platters, including Bouillabaisse in the summer, and a pork shank choucroute in the fall. Housemade cocktails and an impressive dessert list are perfect for special celebrations, seated amongst comfortable round banquettes and potted trees. Quality Bistro also has two private dining rooms— The Avenue Room and The Boulevard Room—that can accommodate up to 50 guests.

A look at a few recent celebrations.

Dollhouse Beautiful On Thursday, February 27th, the New York Design Center partnered with House Beautiful to celebrate Dollhouse Beautiful, a series of eleven custom Victorian dollhouses created by the some of the most well-known designers within the industry. The eleven participating designers included: Peti Lau, Eneia White, Nicole Fuller, Sasha Bikoff, Kelly Finley, Jenny Dina Kirschner, Marie Flanigan, Alyssa Kapito, Cortney Novogratz, Young Huh, and Caitlin Wilson. Each dollhouse was a labor of love for the designers and reflected their own unique aesthetic and style. Guests were buzzing with excitement over the dollhouses as they enjoyed light bites and cocktails while admiring all the intricate details of the houses. All the dollhouses were auctioned off and the proceeds went towards the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club.

Backstory

Sister Parish and Albert Hadley in their own words.

In Their Own Words:

By Ted Lambert

Parish-Hadley

Sister Parish (1910-1994) and Albert Hadley (1920-2012) formed a design partnership in 1962 that lasted over three decades and left behind a legacy and a firm that endures today. While many words have been written about them (see our cover story on Brian McCarthy), ARRAY thought it would only be right to offer them the chance to speak for themselves.

Behind every attractive room there should be a very good reason.

Decorating is not a look, it's a point of view.

SISTER PARISH

ALBERT HADLEY

“Innovation is often the ability to reach into the past and bring back what is good, what is beautiful, what is useful, what is lasting.”

“This is not an easy job.”

“It is only my eye that has helped me. I am still hopeless with that thing called a scale ruler.”

“When a person has flair, a grounding in the principle of design, and self-discipline, that person has the potential of being an outstanding designer.”

“Even the simplest wicker basket can become priceless when it is loved and cared for through the generations of a family.”

“Rooms should not be put together for show but to nourish one’s wellbeing.”

“Home, the idea of home, is my principal purpose.”

“Beige is atmosphere. It's bisque, it's ivory, it's cream, it's stone, it's toast, it's cappuccino. It’s well, it's magic.”

“It has not been an easy name, yet it has brought me many a laugh.” “I think everyone must have a memory of some house, some room, a vivid picture that will remain deep down in one forever.”

“The essence of interior design will always be about people and how they live.” “Ceilings must always be considered. They are the most neglected surface in a room.”
